Strange Behaviour with Fisher Paykel DD603

4 posts in this topic

Hi -

I checked through your site and found a lot of useful information, but nothng that specifically addressed this condition:

I have the DD-603, without the LED readout, integrated. I was using it normally today, then heard some beeps and came to check on the thing. The upper drawer was closed and in use, the bottom drawer was open a few inches (where I'd left it). The upper unit didn't have the lock engaged. Both drawers were operating in what sounded like a drain mode, pump running, even though the bottom one was open. No water in either unit, and the upper one looked like it cleaned the dishes. Both drawers' "play" lights were blinking. Both drawers were beeping. And both had the "rinse" light lit inside. Let's call this Crazy Mode.

I hit stop on both drawers, and they stopped for about 10 seconds, then came back on again in the same mode (beep, pump, blink) at the same time. This repeated whether the drawers were open or closed.

I killed the power and read your docs. I turned the power back on and tried to figure out the diag codes, first with one unit, then both. I pressed the keys to enter diag mode, all the indicator lights inside lit up, and the "play" button light on the front turned red/blue. Then after 10 seconds or so, before I could do anything useful, it reentered Crazy Mode.

We didn't have any lightning hits, and I have whole house surge supressors after learning about the sensitivities of modern electronic appliances. Nothing tripped.

I was guessing that Crazy Mode might have something to do with the control board, but thought I'd better check here first before going off on a goose chase. Any thought or recommendations as to what to do next?

Thanks Much!

Thanks, it was apparently a flood fault. I wish the thing had let me see the diagnostic code before going back into Crazy Mode. I had to call someone in, the dish pile was getting too high.

Much appreciated for the assistance though! Next time...
